Dino Mastroyiannis - Concert Pianist


Eminent Greek concert pianist Dino Mastroyiannis has pursued a career of remarkable diversity. He has been praised as "the Music Ambassador of Greece".
He is the inspirer and Artistic Director of the "Evmelia" International Music Festival (www.evmelia-festival.org), one of the most famous festivals of modern Greece. "Evmelia" completed its 5th annual Edition with tremendous success.
Dino is regarded for his “rich and multi-faceted technique”, “perfect feeling for rhythm” and “rare expressiveness”, he has appeared in such prestigious concert halls as Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, England; Glinka Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic; Ateneul Român in Bucharest; Rudolfinum in Prague; and the Lisinski in Zagreb, to name a few. He has performed in many international festivals and in historic places, including the ‘Bertramka’ Mozart museum in Prague, the ancient Odeon Theatre of Herodes Atticus as part of the Athens International Festival, and in July 2015 at the Mozart's House in Vienna, a concert  organized by the famous Piano factory Bösendorfer.
Dino Mastroyiannis enjoyed a special collaboration and friendship with the legendary living Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis. Among many of Theodorakis’ works for Piano and Orchestra he has performed to critical acclaim, Mastroyiannis achieved tremendous success with the world premiere of Theodorakis’ “Helikon” Piano Concerto – lost for 44 years - given first in Finland in 2005, and subsequently with orchestras in several other countries.
Dino has issued 3 CDs (Saint-Saens: 4th Piano Concerto, "Zorba's Dance-Greek Music for Solo Piano" and Schubert: "Die schöne Müllerin" together with the distinguished Austrian baritone Georg Lehner).
Dino's teachers were Ely Adam, Aliki Vatikioti, Konstantin and Julia Ganevi (former students of Heinrich Neuhaus). He completed his studies in piano performance as a private student of the greatest virtuoso, Brazilian pianist Roberto Szidon, student of Claudio Arrau and Artur Rubinstein.

""This pianist is well known as 'The Music Ambassador of Greece'. We would also add that this title is rightly chosen...impressive how a 'simple' piece in the hands of  a virtuoso could become truly a work of art which persons of all ages find interesting.""

Dino meets John Psathas
The deeply touching sudden meeting with the great Greek-New Zealander composer John Psathas:
On June 18th 2010 on the occasion of Dino's forthcoming new CD release "Zorba's Dance-Greek music for solo Piano" by MSR Classics, in which he also recorded one of the most fantastic pieces for solo Piano by John Psathas, named "Waiting for the Aeroplane", a new precious friendship begun. The great Greek-New Zealander composer John Psathas visited Dino in his house in Volos, Greece, asking to play for him this piece. The tension and the sentiments were incredible to be described...A TV crew coming from New Zealand together with John has filmed Dino's playing in order to include extracts for a documentary about John's life and career.
